Meeting the demands of your busy life may leave little time for you to focus on maintaining your personal well-being. But it is important to remember that each part of you-mind, body, and emotions-serves a purpose in God's exciting plan for your future. Embracing a healthier lifestyle will help you fully experience all the good things He has in store for you.
As 2015 rounds the corner, each of us thinks about what we can change, do better, or at least do differently in the following year. One of the world’s leading Bible teachers and a #1 New York Times bestselling author, Joyce Meyer, understands that modern life is hectic, so she has created a practical plan for achieving good health, one day at a time.
In Good Health, Good Life: 12 Keys to Enjoying Physical and Spiritual Wellness, Joyce Meyer provides a 12-key plan for good life and good health that will help us develop life-changing habits for a healthier lifestyle, no matter what your current level of health. By following her simple, effective tips on eating, exercise, rest and stress management, you will unlock a new level of well-being, empowering you to live the fulfilling life you were meant to lead.
Each chapter or key focuses on something different you can do to have a better life. The book shares five ways to nurturing self-love every day, there are five ways to boost your metabolism, there are five ways to be a mindful eater, and there are another five ways to nourish your spirit.
Here are the 12 keys addressed in Good Health, Good Life to achieve physical and spiritual health this year:
1. Get God’s Help
2. Learn to Love Your Body
3. Master Your Metabolism
5. Eat in Balanced Ways
6. Water Your Life
7. Be Mindful About Eating
8. Curb Your Spiritual Hunger
10. Live With The Right Vision
11. Make It Easy
12. Take Responsibility
These are all very good keys to a great life for all of us! While the book is derived from material previously published Joyce Meyer’s book from November of 2008 called Look Great, Feel Great. I have never read that book, and therefore, when I was reading this book it was new and fresh to me.
In each key, Joyce explains what the important principle is, and why it is vital to physical and spiritual health. Then she makes several suggestions for incorporating that change into our lives. At the end of each key, she asks us to choose to take as many of those suggestions we feel we need and write them in the space provided. That determines if we end up doing all of them or maybe only doing one or two. She says that the important thing is that we do whatever we need to do most.
How much time we spend on each key is completely up to us. She advises us not to rush through them, but to take them one at a time until they become habit before moving on. Joyce urges that the reader read the entire book, and then return to the beginning to work on the keys one at a time.
I love this book because it’s a quick read. You can pick it up and put it down and not worry about exactly where you left off. You’ll know because you will have incorporated that change into your life as a habit, so you’ll know to move to the next key.
